New Bandsaw Box Pattern

07-22-2011 05:43 PM by JustAGirl | 5 comments »

Here is a new pattern I came up with for a bandsaw box. A little different, but true to my style. I am currently working on one out of Bubinga and Oak. I’m curious to see what other LJ members can do with this pattern. Save the pic and make it any size you wish. Mine is something like 5X7. If it turns out okay, I’ll make a bigger one!

Game Calls #1: Turkey Friction Call

02-26-2013 12:42 PM by ghost5 | 8 comments »

Well, thanks to the comments and questions I have gotten I dug through my pics to find one I had on how to make a pot call. So for the folks that want a quick tutorial here we go. A pot call is basically a shallow dish containing two ledges inside. One is cut into the rim to hold the playing surface while the second is a ring left in the center raised to clear the bottom of the pot and still leave a space between the sound board that rests on it and the playing surface above it. One thi...

Make a First Aid Cabinet For the Workshop

When a viewer sent me a comment asking if I could make a First Aid Cabinet for the workshop, I thought to myself. “Yea what a perfect project to do”, because I am setting up the new shop, and it was the one thing missing. The First aid Cabinet was made almost entirely out of Pallet Wood. Oh yea! my first Pallet Project! – Website – The United Federation of Woodworkers Member Sitehttp://www.twitter...

Veneered Sofa Table #6: Experimenting with Veneer Finishes

11-21-2011 11:33 PM by SPHinTampa | 8 comments »

This weekend was more like chemistry class than shop time. I have been experimenting with finishes for the rotary cut bubinga (kevazinga) panels. If I could get a clear coat that did not change the raw wood color, I would be happy. But so far most of my choices have darkened up the raw wood. I am really looking for a clear wood finish that enhances the grain without darkening it. Or a decent coloring that keeps the contrast against the mahogany border without obscuring the grain. ...

Nakashima-esque Coffee Table #1: Step-by-step Tabletop

07-22-2012 01:55 AM by Donowoodworks | 4 comments »

I have been itching to make a table for a while now. Not just any table, mind you, but a live-edge table made from a slab or two. When summer began I told myself that I would do it, and while I was browsing the internet looking for wood slabs, I came across a gentleman who had literally hundreds of slabs sitting in his back yard, waiting to be sold.I looked up the address and saw that it was close to some family members, some seven hours of driving away. “Perfect excuse.” I tho...

Shadow Casting Lamp

09-12-2012 04:59 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 7 comments »

This shadow casting lamp creates a cool effect to any room by casting a shadow on a wall of any scene you’d like to create in the lamps silhouette panels. For this project I used horses. The front of the lamp shows a horse in a natural calm state on all 4’s . And the frosted front panel of glass gives a nice subtle tone of light to illuminate the room. The back of the lamp has a silhouette of a horse raring on it’s hind legs. This is the side that casts a shadow on...
